Christmas sweets
Christmas Dessert
by Peyton Hutchison

On Christmas morning the children singing,
The gifts bringing smiles to our faces
Lunch is delicious—the cheese
From the North.
Christmas dinner brings out
Friends bringing baked grape leaf things,
And Mom makes bread.

My sisters want dessert freshly baked
In the oven—cake and cookies and bread and pie—
BOOM! Smoke poured from the oven—
The cake pops no more.
